Quitting MMO-s


Jorian Drake

Recommended Posts

I tried in the last 5-7 years many, MANY MMO-s and only 2 very different ones catched my interest for a longer timeframe. They were EVE Online and City of Villains.

I always liked sci-fi space theatres, so I guess thats why i like EVE (also have to mention the very good char face creator of it), but it was different with CoV.

CoV did not interest me, i thought it to be too childish, but there was a 14 days trial and i tried it.

 

 

A little sidejump to say what i search for in MMORPG-s: the RPG part.

 

 

Tried Matrix Online, it failed terribly, even if some players there named themselves 'rp-ers', they weren't.

 

Tried World of Warcraft, too many 'noobs' and nearly no RP. I also didn't like the 'go kill things, get parts of them, and get reward" moebius.

 

Tried Dungeons and Dragons Online. Truth be said there are some RP-ers, but its hard to find them, and the game interested me in long terms only in its well made dungeons, the comenter guy's (not remembering correct english word) dialogue/voice, and becouse its D&D my favorite system.

 

 

Back to CoV: I was astounished how many people actually TRIED to RP there, however old/young they were, I also LOVE the character creation possibilities, and that you can still modify the looks later. Also the quests were not the ussual ones, what you find on other games. Yes, there were some that were the ussual routine, but not more than 10%. I have to say after these years I love the EVE for its community and working together with other players, and like CoV to RP and to play quests alone, or with max. 1-2 other roleplayers.

 

 

Why do i then leave them behind for now? It's the money, I am happy to be able to buy food and pay all the bills, to have internet connection is the max i can allow myself right new. :lol:

 

Maybe i will join it later, I am interested how DDO will evolve (where you can jump, climd, swim, even if its DnD like many offline games that doesn't allow this), what EVE will become like, and if CoV will stay with its mostly RP-er players instead of becoming something like WoW. (hack&slash XP hunter item addicts)

 

 

Anyway, I have here all my CoV chars on one picture to show you before i delete them, and one of Istaria, becouse I gues you will like her :)

(as said i played a lot of MMO-s, but didn't wanted to mention all)

 

 

My main char was Lich Pharaoh Azthmek, my friend played the Wizard. I always try in a game to create chars what fit in, having a concept, and only after that looking at what abilities/skills fits into my concept. Again, i loved how i was able to make my char ideas true with the huge possibilities CoV allowed.

(Sadly some details gone missing becouse of resize-ing, like the witty smile of Swift Burglar)

And here is my Istaria char (I said to the to change race name to fairy or pixie, they thought about it before they got buyed by an other company :))

As for not yet released MMO-s i am interested in Pirates of the Burning Sea, Stargate, and Star Trek

...hopefully will have money in some months again :p

 

 

PS: Why the hell i posted all this?

I really thought I owe my characters that much that they get a little introduced before possibly bumped forever :)

No way...

"Of course the people don't want war. But after all, it's the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it's always a simple matter to drag the people along whether it's a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to greater danger."

I just recently closed my WoW account because Final Fantasy XII & NWN2 were released. I'll probably go back when Burning Crusade is released or after I get tired with NWN2 and FFXII. I played an Undead Rogue on an RP server and had fun. I found population to be more mature and friendly, compared to the other non-RP servers I played on.

Nice pixie porn.

 

I played Guildwars quite a lot 8 months ago, then let it go completely because of time constraints and getting bored with the same old same old, a few days ago I picked up the new chapter and have played it way too much for my own good. I will probably get tired of it again in a months time.

 

Why do we get tired, simple enough, any computer game however good gets less interesting with time. When there is nothing left to do and you get tired of looking at the same familiar graphics, you leave. All as it should be really.

Na na  na na  na na  ...

That is all.

Seriously guys, if you want to roleplay there are some excellent PW for NWN with dedicated people who have a great sense of humor. Due to time constraints, I haven't been playing a lot on these PW, but the few hours I spent there, I had a lot of fun and remember quite a few memorable moments. The most important thing is that it's totally FREE.

Hehe, says the guy with almost 1000 hours into WoW.

Ok, very slowly losing its appeal. :)
